and when he was released he wanted to come on this show and explain himself. that's next. >>> stephen baldwin was arrested this week in new york. the district attorney says he owes more than $350,000 for not paying his state taxes for three years. he pleaded not guilty. baldwin said he paid $100,000 already to new york state. earlier he told me he knew all this was coming. >> i've been in a conversation about this very thing for several months now. and, again, i'm not trying to be funny when i say this. i'm grateful these guys are givi me a chance to work it out. it's a tough situation because it wasn't me specifically, as you know, don, you have people do your taxes for you, et cetera, et cetera. it wasn't handled appropriately. i am ultimately responsible but i am in a conversation and we are communicating with them and what i'm told is that we're going to be able to work it out. i'm hoping that's the end result. >> but for you, explain to the audience what happened. >> well -- i don't want to cry in my coffee here, but the long story short is when i moved out of doing my normal car
:15 p.m., singer and song writer, james taylor. host: stephen dinan is politics editor with the washington times and he is here to talk to us about the fiscal cliff. what's next? so let's get to it. on friday you had the lead story with the headline boehner's plan fails to win over g.o.p. the collapse is a serious blow to house speaker john boehner who hoped to gain leverage in his discussion with president obama and signals conservative republicans are unwilling to stomach any rise in tax rates even on those making more than $1 million which was mr. boehner's plan. so walk us through what happened on friday. how did we get there? and it seems like the speaker of the house didn't see this coming, and a lot of folks in washington want to know why not? guest: we begin the week with the speaker of the house saying negotiations between he and president obama had stalled. they were stuck on their -- i guess i would say maybe not their final offers but current offers. boehner said he would raise taxes on those making a million a year or more and get all told $1 trillion in ta
with stephen ambrose, are you? >> guest: well, that may be putting it strongly. i admire stephen ambrose's ability to write. but i do take issue with his picture of libby custer. i think ultimately -- although he doesn't mean it this way -- it's insulting to libby. c-span: you say that "feminine fidelity has traditionally been so prized that libby custer's devotion has pleased even those who consider her husband a villain, as if fidelity to such a man has even greater merit than it would to a more deserving spouse. to historian stephen ambrose, libby was one of the most remarkable american women of the 19th century, although he never justifies his sweeping statement, remarking only that she had unbounded energy and was as courageous as custer himself both characterizations are nonsense." >> guest: yes, that's true. libby was not as courageous as custer. libby was terribly frightened of thunderstorms and hid under the bed whenever there was thunder. custer was known for his exceptional courage, leading his men into battle. i don't see that you can really make that comparison. but more tha

stephen correct that this actually economically makes sense, even if politically, it seems kind of like out of step with the times? >> i go worback and forth on th on the down side, it goes for slower wages. i think steven is right, it will lead to more jobs, i mean michigan is at a disadvantage against some of the right to work states that are just south of it and its lost a lot of the auto jobs to places like kentucky and tennessee and indiana. and this will probably make it more balanced. but again, it's going to weigh on wages. that's the bottom line here. >> the unions in michigan have given up quite a bit with the auto bailouts in 2009 and forward and so they have been -- it's a very much a cooperative relationship that's developed between the management and labor and the auto companies are in neutral on this legislation. >> really, remember during the bailout, the big sticking point was getting the unions to bend on their requirement, on their pensions, and i mean, at the time it was sort of not that long ago, almost unheard of, but the unions in michigan would bend on that. >> i

the america's financial future. here is stephen ohlemacher. thank you for being here. how many people in america receive social security? >> a little bit more than 56 million people get social security. the average benefit is a little over $1,200 a month. so maybe it is like $13,000, $14,000 a year. >> we're talking about retirees but also the disabled. >> yes, fairly wide group of people get social security benefits, retired workers, spouses, children, disabled workers, widows, widowers. it is a fairly big social safety net of people who get social security benefits. >> as you mentioned about 56 million the retirees received a $1,2 a month. there is also the s.s.i. about $500 a month. how does social security get financed? >> it has been a self funded program. it is funded by payroll taxes. there's a 12.4% tax on wages up to about $110,000. you make more than that then any money you make over that is not taxed for social security. it is divided equally between your employer and the worker. for the past two years, the workers share has been reduced. that has saved, by the way, if you
. with millions of americans unemployed this simply makes no sense. stephen moore, senior writer for "the wall street journal." how are you doing, steve? good morning. >> hi, bill. bill: they're saying 43,000 jobs because of this. what, a latex glove gets taxed? i thought it was just like on mri machines and big items like that? >> actually, no. thank you for doing this segment because a lot of americans don't realize when the president calls for all the new taxes in the fiscal cliff negotiation, mr. president we already have a big tax increase that will hit on january 2nd. that of course is the obamacare taxes. you mentioned one of them, the tax on medical devices and medical equipment, bill, which i agree with, congressman price. that will reduce innovation and will reduce the kind of invention and new products we need to keep people healthier. in addition to that, bill, don't forget there is something called 3.8% investment tax surcharge in the obamacare bill that starts in january. one of the things that the president says is a little misleading i will only raise tax rates back where they
the u.s. senate could use stephen colbert. >> of the replacements, i topped south carolina voters' wish lists with 20% supporting me. 20%. that's like half. [ laughter ] >> now my network contract prohibits me from taking on another full-time job. so the senate would be perfect. >> nailed that. >> that's great. >>> welcome back, everybody, to "cbs this morning." we turn now to a story in new york. violent crime in busy midtown manhattan is a fraction of what it used to be. so it was a shock here yesterday when a man was shot and killed in broad daylight. >> it happened outside a school a few steps from carnegie hall, central park, and a major shopping district. as terrell brown reports, it all happened with no warning. >> reporter: witnesses describe the killing as a cold-blooded execution. >> one loud shot. we were all standing here, and we were all scared to death. we looked down the block, we saw the guy on the floor. >> reporter: at around 2:00 p.m. on tuesday, this busy intersection in midtown came to a standstill when the gunman wearing a dark coat and hooded sweatshirt came up be
're not in the union. stephen moore, "wall street journal." who would be next? >> there are a number of states neighbors to michigan really looking at this legislation. i'll name a few to you, bill. pennsylvania, ohio, west virgina, states like that are competing against southern states. remember a lot of jobs and a lot of manufacturing has moved from the midwest, the kind of rust belt of america to the south in part because those southern states are right-to-work. can i mention one other thing if i could, bill, about this issue that is important? bill: sure. >> there is so much misinformation what it means to be a right-to-work state. i want your viewers to know this, if you're a right-to-work state it does not ban unions, bill. simply means that workers who work for a unionized company have the right as an individual to join the union or not. it does not ban unions. bill: to be more specific, if you're not a member of a union, in michigan you're required to pay union dues. >> that is exactly right. bill: under this law you're no longer required to pay dues for something you're not gets servi
in america. stephen moore. stephan, you are the bearer of bad news this morning. how much are our taxes going to get hit in just two weeks? >> well, good morning, guys. merry christmas. you though, this is an unbelievable situation because it's been, what, five or six weeks since the election. abc it's amazing that they are still as far apart today from getting a deal as they were when we first started talking about this. if we do go over the cliff. by the way i agree with peter. i still there is a slim chance at getting something done next week before new year's eve. but if we don't get that deal, we're talking about a very major tax increase. not just on people like warren buffet and bill gates but middle class folks. by my calculations if you look at all the taxes that are going up. if we go over the cliff you are talking about if you are a middle class family earning between 45 and $75,000 your tax bill will go up $2,500 a year. >> we have some of these statistics by category here on the screen. this is modern. from zero dollars to $20,000. you are still going to get hit. 400 bucks, steph
of his neighbor. >>> he once ran for president of the united states of south carolina. now stephen colbert for senate? someone has already created a twitter account and scooped up the colbert for senate website. he actually can't run. >> and she would be insane to appoint him. right? >> i think he really lives in new jersey. >> well there's that. >> thank you. >>> 25 days until we fall off of the fiscal cliff. a new glimmer of hope that maybe a deal is in the works. president obama and speaker john boehner are meeting one-on-one trying to hash out a fiscal cliff deal before the end of the year. clearly that's the deadline. no other leaders in the room though. just the two of them. there are sources that confirm that staff members on both sides resumed talking on thursday as well. will those talks go anywhere? mr. baer is a managing director of the harbor group and he's with us this morning. thank you for being with with us. >> good morning. >> i'm trying to decide if this meeting is a good idea for a bad idea. on the good side f you move all the noise and the debate and the extra p
